Dun & Bradstreet (NYSE:DNB), the world's leading provider of commercial business intelligence, today announced the appointment of Curtis Brown to the role of Chief Information Officer (CIO), reporting to Chief Operating Officer Josh Peirez, effective immediately. Brown, who most recently served as Global Chief Technology Officer at AOL, assumes global responsibility for Dun & Bradstreet's expanding portfolio of technology, proprietary data and related intellectual property.

"As we continue to innovate our technology offerings and revolutionize the delivery of our data and services for our Customers, we need leaders with a proven record of addressing complex business problems at scale," said Peirez. "Curtis's experience building world-class technical products and platforms, and transforming technology systems and functions will prove invaluable as we speed towards a more modern and progressive approach."

Brown joins Dun & Bradstreet at a transformational time in its 173-year history. Recently posting its third consecutive quarter of top line growth, the Company has been successfully executing on its strategic approach to content delivery, and recently acquired Fliptop's social data matching technology business as well as cloud-based business intelligence platform Indicee in April 2014.

"It is clear that Dun & Bradstreet is an organization committed to innovating and implementing next-level data offerings," said Brown. "I am incredibly excited to help further the company's use of technology as an enabler of its growth strategy and to establish it as a leader in IT and data security."
